Tim Sweeney on future of Epic Games

Although Epic are today best known for their first person shooters, lead programmer Tim Sweeney says that "I don't see Epic as being a traditional FPS developer forever".

"We just make the kinds of games we ourselves love to play. The only genres that really qualify universally among the team now are first-person shooters and persistent multiplayer games, but we don't at the moment see an angle from which Epic can get into that genre without growing into a huge and financially complex company, something we don't want to do."

For the full story, read the interview with Tim over on Voodoo Extreme, which also covers Brandon Reinhart's recent departure from Epic, Duke Nukem Forever, geometry deformation, and porting the Unreal engine and games to other consoles and operating systems.
